Low exchange rate

Hello,

5 days till lift off, and have just checked the exchange rates, they're so slow at the moment and it doesn't look like they will go up, does it make everything much more expensive? Should we budget a little bit more for our trip?

Thanks

Hi

Because of low exchange rates it make everything looks more expensive. but generally speaking most things are still the same price. Say we your hotel room is 1000 baht if exchange rate are 30baht for a $1 then your hotel room only cost you just over $33 now your hotel room will cost you $40 for the hotel price 1000 baht.

Hope it make sense.

If the exchange rate is less then you will be paying more. Simple as that.
